Reviews of Quasar

Very nice, fresh unobtrusive, aquatic suitable for everyday wear. Different from the common aquatic scent out there. Too bad it was discontinued. Longevity is an easy 10 hours and sillage moderate. Totally recommended! Overall 8/10

I have to confess that at first I was mostly attracted by the marketing elements of Quasar. The futuristic bottle looks like a device in some science fiction and the name Quasar suggests something radiant and full of energy. Well, what I smell might not match its appearance.

The opening smells like some typical men's cologne. But it soon evolves into a smooth banana milkshake. Yummy! At the same time, I can smell some greenness, as if the milkshake is made with some real fresh banana. After 2 hours, the banana notes mellows to the background. What settles on the skin is a soft lavander smell. It stays very close to skin and lingers about 6h.

I wish the banana milkshake scent could stay a little longer. But it's just my personal taste. I still like it very much as it is. It's very refreshing in summer. If you're looking for a non-aquatic fresh fragrance for summer, I'd recommend Quasar.

Moderate thumbs up for Quasar by Jesus del Pozo.

This one has a fairly sharp green quality: Fruity Pungence rounded out subtly with various spicy notes and lavender. Not as intense as other green scents like (the also discontinued) Versace Green Jeans,

Quasar seemed to have some restraint and leveled out to a medium strength on my skin. The aquatic and citrus notes definitely characterize the basic nature of this one, which seems to go well for warmer weather.

I felt compelled to update my review. This is possibly the best aquatic mens fragrance, ever. I now get the banana peel immediately, and the top fruity/aquatic notes never go away. 20-30 minutes or so and it deepens, with lavender smoothing it out and rosemary giving it sharpness. An hour or so and the base notes are there, giving it the most amazing woody depth. I have many bottles, and vintage is probably the best. Many compliments on this one, from men and women alike. All about layering with this one. I wash with a non fragrant body wash, pat that dry and then use a non fragrant lotion. I spray in all the key areas, 4-5 sprays. Then about an hour later, I spray again, and it lasts until I take my morning shower the next day. Too bad it was discontinued, I've got a stockpile because of this. I've been watching the pricing on Quasar, and it is slowly creeping up. In 3-4 years you won't be able to touch a 125ml bottle under $80-100. US dollars. Grab this elixir of the gods at a good price while you still can. My absolute favorite mens fragrance.

One of the best aquatic scents. Banana leafs and minty notes make it special. Very fresh and clean. Safe scent. Difficult to offend someone with this one.

Good job 7.5/10

If you like Acqua di Gio, but want something more complex than this is it. It has a mix of fruit and citrus in the opening, but it's not sweet. Within 5 minutes it goes into the herbal stage where you get the clary sage, rosemary, geranium a just a hint of lavender. In the base I can only recognize cedar and sandalwood. This transitions within 10 minutes to the base with the top notes gone and the middle notes in the background. Quasar is one of the few summer type fragrances that I think you can wear all year round. Some might call it boring, but it's more interesting that AdG, Perry Ellis 360 Red, etc.
